put a bird on it necklace

One of our favorite dollar store crafters is Michelle of Mich L. in LA. She has a weekly feature on her blog where she makes a piece of jewelry out of something unexpected — a supply that she usually finds at the dollar store! This week, she stumped us with the components for this fun “Put a Bird on It” necklace. I recognize where those doves came from, though — they’re favors from the wedding section of Dollar Tree! You get 50 of them in a pack for $1. That’s a whole lotta cute bird necklaces! [how to make a bird necklace]

Because part of the necklace ingredients are a secret, I won’t tell you what one thing is. You’ll have to click over to her site to find out!
